SERVICE OF A GIBSON RV-79RV STEREO COMBO AMPLIFIER

 

"I'm not sure which came first; the "V"- Front Dominator or this "V"- Fronted Gibson GA-79RV. I wonder if one was the "rip off" of the other? Either way, this Gibson boasts much more power than the Dominator at 30 watts total (15 watts per channel) and is true stereo. It uses 4 x EL84's in the two output stages and 2 x Jenson 10" speakers.

I was amazed that this amplifier only needed one resistor changing and no capacitors! That's very unusual for an amp of this age. Apart from a few silly things like crackly tube bases and potentiometers, she was fine. Oh I forgot; one speaker was wired the wrong way round - out of phase." 

- John.
